Frame skipping at stock refresh rate

Talk about overclocking displays at a higher refresh rate. This includes homebrew, 165Hz, QNIX, Catleap, Overlord Tempest, SEIKI displays, certain HDTVs, and other overclockable displays.

Frame skipping at stock refresh rate

Post by senny22 » 16 Nov 2023, 16:32

Hi!

So I've noticed that my monitor (Samsung Odyssey G7) is skipping one frame in the frame skipping test unless i lower the refresh rate down to 190 Hz or lower. Is this normal behavior or is my unit faulty? Am i better of sticking with 240 Hz and the single skipped frame or should I lower my refresh rate down to 190 Hz?

You have to rule out the browser first;
(A) Is the browser saying "VALID" in green continuously
(B) There are no red frametime spikes at https://www.testufo.com/animation-time-graph.

If (A) is yes, and (B) is yes, then your firmware might be faulty, but you have to be 100% sure that the frameskipping is not caused by the web browser. It was used to successfully detect firmware-based frameskipping bugs in the past on some models -- see viewtopic.php?t=3598
